The K-pop supergroup's music video for "Boy With Luv," featuring Halsey, is nominated for International Video of the Year.

"Hello Philippines and #MYXAwards2020!" BTS tweeted, with a video showing details for voting.

"Thank you for nominating #BTS and our video 'Boy With Luv (Feat. Halsey)' in this year's MYX Awards! We're really thankful for all the love and support of fans and everyone's support over there!"

Within minutes of the group's tweet, "Hello Philippines" ranked among the trending topics on Twitter locally and worldwide.

The greeting also prompted quick action among Filipino ARMY to organize a voting schedule to ensure their idol's win in MYX Awards. Voting is open until July 10.

If they accomplish the feat, it wouldn't be the first win for BTS in the MYX Awards. In 2019, they topped the same category with "Fake Love."
